Sask. IPC Tables 2016-2017 Annual Report
Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner, Ronald J. Kruzeniski, Q.C. has submitted his office’s 2016-2017 Annual Report to the Legislative Assembly. Kruzeniski stated:
“I will report on our achievements under the old plan but also outline our objectives under our new 3 year plan.”
And he also identified a number of issues faced when navigating in a digital world:
“From the stories around the world, the breaches, the damage to reputation and the costs to remedy a breach, there is no doubt that public bodies will be required to spend much more to safeguard the information they have collected from their citizens.”
As well, he indicated:
“My office has issued a document regarding data matching in the province of Saskatchewan. That paper outlines the meaning of the word, the benefits, the risks, a review of legislation in other countries and provinces, the inadequacies of current Saskatchewan legislation and the needs in the Saskatchewan environment.
I recommend the government of Saskatchewan propose and the Legislative Assembly consider a stand-alone Act dealing with data matching.”
